Nancy and Earl's sister Gertrude Stock married twice. Her first husband was John E. Kraft. He was a soldier in World War I, rank Corporal, he died of his wounds. Hometown Frametown.
Gertrude's second husband was John Mason Priest. His parents were Edmund Willis Priest and Laura Theadotia Priest (they were cousins).
I believe John and Gertrude were married on September 12, 1923 (needs verification).
Gertrude Priest's SSDI record shows she was born September 17, 1896 and census reports show she was born in WV (probably Center, Gilmer County). She died in July 1974 and her last residence was Spencer, Roane County, WV.
John Priest's SSDI record shows he was born March 9, 1899 and census reports show he was born in WV (probably Freeman's Creek, Lewis County). He died in November 1988 and his last residence was Ellicott City, Howard County, MD.
In the 1920 census, Gertrude, age 24, was living with her family in Center, Gilmer County, WV, and she was listed as a teacher in a rural school.
In the 1930 census they were living in Philippi, Barbour County, WV, and he was 31, she was 33, and they had been married seven years, but no children are listed. John is listed as a college teacher. Since he attended Broaddus College (in 1921 merged with another school and became Alderson-Broaddus College) he may have been teaching at that college.
